# Japanese man smashes pi memory record watch

1. right, i see...
2. please explain to me though, how they add to give 10?
3. (Original post by SaccerZD)
That was a joke
4. ok...
5. I know where the ∏ key is on my calculator.

I use my own memory for more important data, like shopping lists and where my towel is.

Indeed. Is a male truly a man without knowing exactly where his towel is?
7. Not if the Hitchhiker's Guide has taught me anything.

I know e to 271 digits
very clever

Yep he recited pi, and you recited the article from:

Or just copied and pasted it
wow.
10. Okay, to the people remembering irrational numbers to n decimal places, why?! Something more useful is the powers of 2 :P
11. I have memorized the powers of 10 to ∞ decimal places, insaaaaane
12. I know 6^3 to 9 sig figs!!!!!!

I know my own name
14. oh... well done

pi is way more superior than 'e'
16. Just saw this on the bbc website and thought it was crazy! I mean how do you learn something like that considering that the pi goes on for infinity and the numbers never form a pattern? I thought I was doing well when I could recite it to 4 decimal places

17. That's amazing, I know it upto ~23 digits but 83,000...

I learn it in blocks of two digits, generally: 3.141-59-26-53-58-97-93-23-84-62-64-33-83-27-95-02 I hope that's correct, if so I know it to 33, 10 more than estimated

83,000 is just too much though, I think it was shown that using 37 decimal places in a calculation to do with Pi means that you're left with a rounding error so small that it cannot affect anything, though I could be way wrong on that.
18. i know it up to 2k (( damn i thought i was pretty clever but now that i've read this............
19. i'm sure if you didn't learn anything else then most people could do it. but i'd rather learn interesting things!
uh i mean thats really impressive *eyeroll*
